May is Foster Care Awareness Month








Celebrating National Foster Care Awareness Month The month of May is recognized as Foster Care Awareness Month by the Department of Social Services (DSS) and many statewide partners and stakeholders. The month-long observance is an opportunity to draw attention to the need for temporary caregivers for children and youth who enter foster care. At Three Rivers Respite, we understand the joys and challenges of foster care. We understand that foster parents and children in foster care both need a break and all parents need a time of rest. Three Rivers Respite serves South Carolina foster parents by providing year-round, overnight respite opportunities. Children in foster care will enjoy a fun-filled camp experience with peers from similar circumstances alongside counselors trained to meet their unique needs. Join us in raising awareness and celebrating National Foster Care Month
